Bye Bye Tiberias

Dir: Lina Soualem
French, Arabic with English subtitles

Years after leaving her Palestinian village to pursue an acting career in France, Hiam Abbass (Succession) returns home with her daughter, filmmaker Lina Soualem, in this intimate documentary about four generations of women and their shared legacy of separation.

It’s clear that Abbass (Lemon Tree, Insyriated, Blade Runner 2049, Succession) was always destined to be a major screen presence. Soualem’s love letter to her mother follows the actor as she returns home to the village she grew up in. Drawing on a rich trove of archive footage, this beautiful and intimate documentary finds the artist returning home and reconnecting with the women of Tiberias, Palestine and beyond.
